Connor's Sports Day 

So proud of this little guy yesterday. It was Connor's sport day and a hard day for us to watch. Seeing your child next to other children, you can see the struggles, differences and weaknesses more. The school and his classmates were fantastic as they all agreed because of Connor's poorly muscles that he should have a bit of a head start. This meant instead of him coming last by quite a lot, he finished around the same time as the others and from where we were standing he won the sack race. Although we believe it's not about the winning, it's the taking part that really counts. This isn't a great photo as it shows us that his stance is starting to change more like a boy with ‪#‎duchenne‬. His belly is starting to pop out and his body is changing shape in order to support himself as his muscles waste away more. On the bright side look at his little face and cheeky grin getting ready to run

 He loves running, climbing and doing what all children love. We can't let duchenne take this away from him. ‪#‎fightharder‬ ‪#‎cureduchenne‬
